"It was a pleasure to work with Hudson. He was very responsive. It makes a big difference to have someone you can count on. Thank you, Hudson!" -- Corporate Event Planner
Strolling magic is the ideal ice breaker. During the cocktail hour before dinner or on a river cruise. This magic is highly interactive, mixes the crowd, and gets everyone in a great mood before the main event. This type of magic is extremely versatile and is appropriate for any number of people in almost any setting.
Stage magic is best served as the main entertainment after dinner or as a stand-alone event. Hudson's show is family-friendly and appropriate for audiences of up to 500.
Hudson has been performing magic for over 40 years and is one of the fortunate few to turn his hobby into his livelihood. Based in Minnesota, he has performed professionally across the USA and has entertained informally on all seven continents! Hudson is a member of several professional organizations, including The International Brotherhood of Magicians, The Society of American Magicians, and The Academy of Magical Arts – home to the World Famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California. accolades from both party-goers and professional groups alike.
A West Point and Wharton Business School graduate, Hudson’s 20-year business career culminated as a senior executive in a public company. But it was his experience as a volunteer and board member of Open Heart Magic, a nonprofit with the purpose of empowering sick children at their hospital bedside by teaching them simple magic, that changed Hudson’s career course forever. Motivated by smiles on faces of seriously sick children, Hudson decided to leave corporate life in 2013 and pursue magic as a full-time profession.
In addition to performing nationally, Hudson owns and operates Twin Cities Magic Academy, offering magic summer camps and after school programs through a variety of school systems in Minnesota. Today Hudson not only brings smiles to the faces of corporate audiences every week, but he also helps a new crop of young magicians learn to do the same for future generations.
Hudson was a surprise for the family members at our reunion and we have gotten so many comments about how cool he was. We've tried so many different way to explain how he does the tricks and no one can! The kids were awe-struck, the adults were wowed, it went great. -- Laura
"Hudson performed at our company holiday dinner. I addition to a stage show, he performed table magic as our employees arrived during the social hour. A fantastic idea for a wedding reception!"I wish I had thought of his services for my daughter's wedding! The good news is a have 4 more daughter's for which to host a wedding!
"Hudson arrived early, stayed late, and mesmerized my clients with his terrific up-close magic. I never saw him actually take a break, he was engaged from the time he hit the gangway until he left. I heard clients all over the cruise ship laughing and howling at his magic. He dressed like a magician - very professional - even though it was near 90 degrees and quite humid. I would highly recommend Hudson for any special event where you want to add more fun and entertainment. Thank you Hudson!"
